I wonder how many were taken or persuaded by the talk on the Flex radios on Wednesday evening? SDR does take some time to be comfortable with, especially when there is no front panel, unless you buy a Maestro as well! However, having a 6600 for around 9 months now, I don't think I could conceive going backwards again. I know some modern transceivers do have a screen with them, but it's a toy compared to a 27 inch monitor. This applies even more the older the user.

If you are in the market for a new transceiver, do think very carefully before changing, it will be a decision that will stay with you for some time, unless you can afford to own multiple transceivers of course!
